Amidst news of exorbitant ticket prices both on the retail and secondary markets, the Internal Revenue Service is now set to tax concert ticket resellers. According to a report, the IRS is now looking to crack down on those flipping tickets with a new law.
The new law targets those who make more than $600 USD from reselling tickets starting this year. The updated law, a part of the American Rescue Plan Act, will see companies like Ticketmaster now need to report if customers generated more than $600 USD in profit.
“Payment apps and online marketplaces are required to file a Form 1099-K if the gross payments to you for goods and services are over $600,” the IRS noted in a statement. “The $600 reporting threshold started with tax year 2023. There are no changes to what counts as income or how tax is calculated.”
